Winter Storm Warning
Statement as of 4:10 AM EST on March 04, 2015

... Winter Storm Warning remains in effect from 1 PM this
afternoon to 1 PM EST Thursday...

* timing... colder air will move in from northwest to southeast
this afternoon through tonight... changing precipitation from
rain... to a mixture of snow and sleet during the afternoon. The
mixed precipitation will change to just snow by late Wednesday
evening. Snow will lighten and taper off Thursday afternoon.

* Snow and sleet accumulations of 8 to 11 inches. A light glaze of
ice from freezing rain is also possible from this afternoon
into early this evening.

* Impacts... snow accumulations of this magnitude will make
travel difficult to treacherous. In addition... the heavy wet
nature of this snow will cause stress on weak structures and
could also lead to downed power lines and trees with some
power outages possible.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Storm Warning for heavy snow and sleet means severe
winter weather conditions are expected. Significant amounts of
snow are forecast that will make travel dangerous. Only travel in
an emergency. If you must travel... keep an extra flashlight...
food... and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency.





Areal Flood Warning
Statement as of 6:57 AM EST on March 04, 2015

The National Weather Service in Jackson KY has issued a

* Flood Warning for...
rain and snowmelt in...
Lee County in southeastern Kentucky...
Fleming County in east central Kentucky...
Menifee County in east central Kentucky...
Powell County in east central Kentucky...
Montgomery County in east central Kentucky...
Morgan County in southeastern Kentucky...
Elliott County in east central Kentucky...
Bath County in east central Kentucky...
Wolfe County in southeastern Kentucky...
Estill County in east central Kentucky...
Rowan County in east central Kentucky...

* until 400 PM EST Wednesday

* at 653 am EST... Doppler radar and automated rain gauges indicated
that heavy rain was falling over the area. That heavy rain will
cause flooding. Up to one inch of rain has already fallen since
midnight and up to another inch could fall by mid afternoon.
Rainfall rates of one quarter to a half of an inch per hour on
saturated ground will likely overwhelm ditches and culverts. Small
streams and creeks should also flood with this additional rainfall.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Mount Sterling... Morehead... West Liberty... Stanton... Irvine...
Flemingsburg... Owingsville... Beattyville... Sandy Hook...
Frenchburg... Campton... Marshall... Henry... Lewis... Jeffersonville...
Camargo... Clay City... Ravenna... Wellington and Sharpsburg.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.
